Lincoln's boys tennis team, in the midst of playing three home matches in as many days, is doing a good job of getting off the court.
For the second day in a row the Alices (7-5) didn't lose a set, shutting out Sullivan, 5-0, Wednesday on senior night.
Going the shortest route were No. 2 singles David Wilson and No. 3 singles Parker Dugan, each winning 6-1, 6-2. Wilson topped Drew Baker and Dugan clocked Hunter Pirtle. No. 1 doubles Kyle Stenger-Landon Altstadt defeated Scott Fuson-Jared Couch, 6-1, 6-4; No. 1 singles Ethan Jones dropped Houston Ferree, 6-2, 7-5; and No. 2 doubles Simon Corrona-Calvin Carmean edged Dillon Grubb-Noah Kincaid, 7-6 (7-3), 6-3.
"We weren't at our best. A couple players were dealing with injuries, and everyone came out slow so we're just glad to come away with a win on senior night," Lincoln coach Bryce Crane said. "I'm hoping we come out ready to play (today)."
The Alices entertain Princeton at 4:30 p.m.
